are dealing with public opinion that is influx. you have had a shift in favor of stricter gun laws since the newtown shootings. you have had a greater openness toward leaguization. >> the said show is up next. when al gore lost in 2000, lost the electoral college vote he is the one who started saying that he lost because of his support and bill clinton's support for gun control measures including the assault weapons ban. other democrats began to say the same thing. well, that gave the nr afar more power than deserved. i didn't believe it was true then and i don't believe. >> west virginia, kentucky, tennessee that's where he was finding his problems, right? >> where republicans win anyway. the people who vote for republicans. in those states are not going to vote for a democrat. it doesn't matter what he does. >> i'm not going to argue except on these points of electoral college votes. it used to be we got arkansas the democratic side. west virginia was consistently -- anyway, the guys on the far right here. fear factor. kentucky senator rand paul wants to run for president is concerned
, including the republican-controlled senate, passed one of the toughest gun reform laws in the country. the governor signed the bill into law immediately. the new measure bans high capacity magazines limiting clips to seven rounds of ammunition. the law changes the definition of assault weapons, making guns like the bushmaster illegal. there are now background checks for all gun sales, including private transactions. the law requires background checks for ammunition. it also requires mandatory reporting of mental health threats. governor cuomo said that his state wanted to send a message to the rest of the country. quick action on sensible gun laws is possible. >> we can strike back, and we can defend ourselves, but we're going to do it intelligently. and we're going to do it prudently. and we're going to put rules in place that actually protect innocent people in society. >> legislative bodies like the one in new york are basically on the move. tomorrow it will be the president's turn to show his hand. president obama will unveil several gun safety proposals, including a universal bac
. also, the government has an obligation to protect americans with laws that do not harm law abiding citizens. that means that any new gun laws must allow we, the people, to protect ourselves as the founding fathers mandated. talking points has no problem with background checks. or with gun registration. after all, we register our cars. but these things should be decided by the individual states, not the federal government. if the state like new york wants to ban assault rifles, fine. but wyoming may not want to do that. and the feds should respect the states' rights. what president obama can do is make all gun crimes federal crimes. congress can forbid individuals from crossing state lines with certain types of weapons. bank robbery is a federal crime. so is some drug dealing. why not put gun felonies in that category? let's take a look at chicago which has banned handguns. more people were murdered by guns in chicago in 2012 last year than were killed among coalition forces in afghanistan. obviously the gun ban in coshocton doesn't work. do we all get that? what would work is a 10-
will sign the measure into law. >>> and tonight, in further breaking news, as slow as house republicans were to act in response to hurricane sandy, tonight's other major news is about how fast new york state was able to move to respond to a different kind of disaster. tonight one month and one day after the mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut, a town that is only about nine miles from the new york-connecticut border, tonight the state of new york has become the first state in the country since that tragedy to reform its gun laws. and it reformed its gun laws dramatically. as of tonight, as of tonight, new york has just enacted the toughest set of gun laws in the country. the state senate, which is run by a republican-dominated coalition passed the measure last night by a vote of 43-18. that was last night. then it was this afternoon the heavily democratic assembly voting. the margin in the assembly was 144-43. and then tonight, less than an hour after it won final passage in the legislature, governor andrew cuomo signed it, signed it into law. parts of it ta
use if that use was generally recognized as being a sporting purpose. it was already the law, but he took executive action under that law to ban the importation of specific weapons. the gun control act of 1968 that gave him that power was passed in the wake of the assassinations robert kennedy and martin luther king. and it is what gave george h.w. bush to take that executive action that he took banning some rifles. in 1989, two months after that schoolyard massacre in stockton, california. years later, president clinton followed in his footsteps. president clinton, in 1998, took executive action as president to ban the importation of more than 50 different kinds of semiautomatic assault weapons. this was in addition to the assault weapons ban. this was further action taken by the president alone in 1998. he took executive action to ban the importation of certain kinds of guns. today, president obama became yet another modern president to use his executive authority for reform of gun-related laws. president obama did not use his authority as president as his predecessors did. and i m
. >> the president lays it all on the line for new gun laws. >> this will not happen unless the american people demand it. >> and he calls out the right wing machine that wants to kill reform. >> tonight, congresswoman jackie sleer of california on the president's major announcement. dan gross on the brady campaign and on whether the president's campaign can work. michael steele on the dispickble nra ad attacking the president's kids. >> plus, obama for america is getting the fan back together to fight the nra. >> it is time to get activated, again. >> former obama deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter joins me tonight. and congresswoman january shakowski on the return of the public option. >> good to have you with us tonight. folks, thanks for watching. there cannot be another false start in curbing gun violence in this country. today, the path for change was paved. president obama announced proposals for sweeping reforms to gun laws in this country in the wake of the horror at the wake of the horror at sandy hook elementary, it's gut check time for america. >> this is our first task as a s
a sweeping gun law. what it is going to do is submit gun owners to fingerprinting. it will ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, require gun safety courses and background checks. he goes further than his democratic governor, and anthony o'donnell tells "outfront" the reality is martin o'malley is trying to get to the left of cuomo in new york because he wants to run for president in 2016. eric, former obama administration official rosa brooks, and our legal analyst, paul cowin. martin o'malley not the only politician who has 2016 ambitions who is stepping out in the gun law fray. louisiana republican governor bobby jindal wants a law to keep guns away from the mentally ill. how much is this push really about positioning for 2016? >> i think some of it definitely is about 2016. some of it is they want to be doing something. they hope if they're seen as doing something now, by 2016, the particulars may be forgotten, particularly by gun rights advocates and a lot in the democratic party as well as the republican party. they'll look at them as doing something. i don't think we s
. and he'd like stricter laws on gun trafficking. but senator schumer, just as i challenged wayne lapierre of the nra very hard when this came up, i challenge you as well with a question of, is this really going to make a difference? and rich lawry wrote something that caught my attention in "the national review." no one can write a law against mothers owning guns that one day might be turned against them by deranged sons who then commit horrific acts of murder-suicide. shooting rampages are hard to prevent because they are so often committed by young men with no criminal records who want to die. these are adult facts that don't intrude on the childish world of white house policy making. he notes adam lanza in newtown, his own mother of course passed a background check. >> here's the bottom line. these laws are not perfect. and you'll always find certain exceptions. but they make a huge difference. every major person who has studied the brady law, which is the most significant gun safety law we've passed in the last 20 years has said it has reduced gun violence dramatically. law enforcemen
, whether it's my ancestors from ireland and germany, many generations ago or my in-laws and brother's side of the family a generation ago from mexico. in every case, the people who by and large have come to america have come with a dream of living a better life than their children. getting an education, working hard. in many cases starting up their businesses and living the american dream and we ought to find a way to make that more possible. now, that also means we live in a society of rules and so we need to abide by the laws that i think there are practical ways to abide by those lawses. and any ethnic where they come from, should live the american dreams and what it stands for. >> greta: what do you do about those illegally here in this country? have you thought about that? that's one of the thornier issues. >> well, clearly there's got to be a well thought-out process in doing this, a balance between respect for the law and all the talk about securing the border, which is important, is that we've got a mess when it comes to the federal agency that controls immigration. we've got peopl
to pass laws to protect our citizens. so, i mean, this is the fear that they keep throwing out there, and they're not trying to get to someone that's a moderate. they're going straight to their hard core right people. that's why they lost the presidency, that's why they lost a few seats in the house. they have to start, excuse me, coming together to get not just on the gun issue, on an awful lot of issues. look what happened the other day with sandy. it was democrats that got that bill over the line. but, you know, it should be working together for all of the american people, and right now all the polls are showing the american people, including nra members, including gun owners, are saying we should be doing something. one of the things that we noticed, most people, nra members, gun owners, didn't know that everybody was not going through a background check. they didn't realize that 40% of gun owners are getting their guns without going through a background check. these are all law-abiding citizens when they go to buy their guns. why isn't everybody else? that's what we're fighting
with it. do you see any other republicans coming out, condemning these kinds of laws like powell just talked about? >> well, listen, no one has the kind of strength of conviction that general powell does when it comes to critiquing the republican party. part of that is because he's not really in politics the way some of these folk are. but there to be a reckoning in the republican party. they have to deal with everything he has laid out here, because the demographics are the destiny for the party. unless they want to become obsolete, they have to pay attention to the issues colin powell laid out for them on "meet the press" yesterday. >> it doesn't sound like you think the republicans are going to take any of his advice. >> there is no suggestion that they will, ed. the proof will be in the pudding. either they will or they won't. but, again, a lot of folk have been talking about these things for a long time. you hope coming from a republican general as respected as general powell will hopefully have some impact. my sense is i wouldn't hold my breath. >> james peterson, good to have y
. new york becomes the first state in the nation to pass a gun control law in the wake of the sandy hook shooting tragedy. last night, lawmakers approved andrew cuomo's aggressive plan. and assault weapons ban and storing an assault weapon will now be considered a misdemeanor. and police will have a registry for people who r have assault weapons and limits magazine capacity to seven rounds, i hope you don't have more than three intruders in your house and gun crime sentences will be increased. pistol holders and weapons holders must renew the bills every five years and protects legal gun owners from having their identities revealed. and if-- after last night's giant gun grab my next guest immediately expressed his outrage. >> tonight, we preach about saving lives. not long ago, i think a woman was in georgia, she has several young children, her husband showed her how to shoot, somebody broke into her home, came after her, she shot him, i believe, six times. tonight, we're going to pass legislation that if she had eight rounds in that chamber, instead of seven, she h'd be a criminal. we h
'll quote them, only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable. what is the nra strategy when it comes to this debate? here is tom foreman with an out front investigation on how the nra gets what it wants. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? >> in a hard-hitting response to calls to are new gun restriction, the nra has rolled out this ad attacking the white house saying the president is happy to have armed secret service agents protecting his children but for everyone else -- >> he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> reporter: it is the latest muscle flex by the gun group superpac which last year spent more than $16 million from its deep war chest to influence political races. that's not a tremendous amount for such efforts. big oil, the pharmacy industry, even retired people have more and better funded lobbyists. the gun group uses its money and membership effectively often targeting early any lawmaker that threatens to go against gun rights. larry sab ba toe is at the university of
was 17. so even if he and sara had sex, it wasn't statutory rape. instead prosecutors used another law that says teachers can't have sex with students under 18. a grand jury indicted sara jones on first-degree sexual abuse and for using those text messages to lure him in. >> i didn't wrap my mind around it. i didn't even cry at first. it was deeper than that. there were no tears. and then my mom so calmly told me, and i've been charged, too. and i said, wait a minute, for what? >> cheryl jones, devoted mother, school principal had also been indicted, accused of tampering with evidence, trying to cover up her daughter's crimes by texting cody york to get rid of his cell phone before the cops came. >> i had no idea i was even considered for any kind of indictment. it totally floored me. >> they turned themselves in, and suddenly a new family portrait, mother-daughter mug shots, both thrown in the county jail. >> you were in jail with your daughter? >> i was in jail with my daughter. that's not one of the things that we had on our bucket list. >> the jones family scraped up the $80,000 ca
to increase the debt ceiling in order to pay its bills. he singled out republican law americas warning them he will not negotiate on the matter adding brinkmanship would be absurd and irresponsible. >> raising the debt ceiling does not authorize us to spend more, all it does is say that america will pay it's bills. we are not a dead beat nation. >> in a statement john fwhier says the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real so, too, are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. republican senator mike lee of ue ah taw says the government needs put into place structural spending reform because simple spending cuts will no longer do the job. we are going to face another credit downgrade i fear because we will face it again without think being the way paushiwashi spends money. >> he is willing to work with republicans to reign in spending. he wants to conduct those talks separately from the gop to raise the debt ceiling. he hopes by doing so he can avert a first ever national default. >> kelly wright live in washington. thank you. >>> it is time to t
. >> thank you, bill. >>> last night new york became the favorite state in the nation to change its gun laws in the wake of last month's shooting mass keer in newtown, connecticut. democratic governor andrew cuomo signed into law a sweeping package of gun control reforms after it was overwhelmingly passed by the state assembly. >> i'm proud to be a new yorker because new york is doing something. because we are fighting back. >> the new law expands a ban on assault weapons and reduces the size of allowable gun magazines to seven rounds from ten. it also includes measures to limit access to firearms by the mentally ill and imposes stiffer penalties on those who use guns while committing a crime. >>> president obama will be offering a sweeping new gun legislation of his own. though any proposal to ban assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines is likely to face stiff opposition in congress. nbc's tracie potts has the details now from washington. what are some of the measures we're expecting the president to propose today? >> reporter: in addition to those bans which congress has to

standoff between law enforcement and this very well-armed group of people. it was a 50-day standoff in waco that ended in a massive fire and many, many fatalities. >> good evening. it appears tonight that david koresh, who believed that he was the son of god, perished today in a setting that closely resembled hell. and apparently, he took more than 85 of his followers with him, including it's estimated 17 children. >> what happened at waco was an absolute nightmare. but on parts of the very far right, on the anti-government far right fringe, it was seen not just as a nightmare but as a conspiracy, as a government conspiracy, as something that was ginned up and in fact faked by the government to create a big enough, scary enough situation that it would justify taking away everyone's guns. a freshman republican congressman from texas at the time, a congressman named steve stockman, even wrote in an article in "guns & ammo" magazine that waco was a government execution. he said, "waco was supposed to be a way for the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms and the clinton administration to pro
on gun laws, what kinds of guns are used, whether they're legal, what do you know at this point? >> reporter: well, we have been asking around as to whether or not this was a hand gun that was legally owned, legally purchased, what the background is on that gun. obviously there are agents that will handle that part of the investigation. i haven't been able to confirm anything on that end just yet. however, hand guns in the state of texas, you are legally allowed to carry a hand gun if you have the proper license and that sort of thing. however, just because you have that license doesn't mean you can carry guns on to a school campus. campuses and churches, there's a laundry list of places where you can't carry guns and school campuses are one of those. so as the sheriff here said in what i think was a school campus official said it's impossible to check the thousands and thousands of students that come through here, but in theory, this is not a place where you should have had a gun. >> all right, thank you very much. ed continues to work that story. as ed just mentioned, the texa
, it shows us that it's a law that's not accepted by lots of people. the thing they should do is a eleven dumb. then we will know what people really want. >> the french police say about 350,000 demonstrators showed up. others say the crowd was much larger. can you see that the culture war is intensifying. now here in the u.s.a., traditional forces are scattered. the left is better financed, letter organized, and more motivated. mitt romney lost the election partially because hundreds of thousands of traditional voters stayed home. they didn't like romney. perhaps he wasn't conservative enough. the result, a triumph for liberalism. if traditional americans want to stop the trend, they have to do it at the ballot box. and they have to convince younger americans, minorities and apathetic people, which there are plenty that the country is headed for disaster. liberalism itself is not bad thing. if you look at american history some of our greatest accomplishments were driven by liberal leaders. now we are looking at an emerging nanny state. libertine social policies that a client of religion a
and uphold our values through strength of arms and rule of law. we will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully, not because we are naive about the dangers we face, but because engagement can more durably lift suspicion and fear. america will remain the anchor of strong alliances in every corner of the globe. and weapon will renew those institutions that extend our capacity to manage crisis abroad. for no one has a greater stake in a peaceful world. >> i think that's the most important thing he said today because i think it's about war and peace. i think he wants peace with iran, somehow. and i think picking hagel and john kerry are part of that today. it will be interesting to look at the traffic tomorrow out of teheran and whether they respond to this or not. the president said it was time now for his generation to keep up the work on behalf of all americans and immigrants. this is very liberal. let's listen. >> authority is not complete until our wives, our mothers and daughters are can earn a living equal to our efforts. our journey is not compl
's try to help them figure it out a little bit with visual and audio assistance. >> i signed into law $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two week ago, i signed a bill into law regarding revenue, by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money and the interest payments on the debt, that adds up to about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years, not counting the $400 billion saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we have made progress. >> didn't president clinton say it was all about math? republicans can posture on the debt ceiling all they want. they know the truth. listen to john boehner two years ago. >> do you agree that defaulting on the full faith and credit of the united states would be a financial disaster? >> that would be a financial disaster for our country and the worldwide country. >> oh, financial disaster. apparently this is not a game. timothy geithner says that we will hit the debt limit between mid february and early march. the financial security of millions of americans is at stake. >> if
on high-capacity ammunition clips and conceded that getting new gun laws passed is going to be tough. >> if responsible gun owners, if americans of every background stand up and say, enough. we've suffered too much pain and care too much about our children to allow this to continue then change will -- change will come. that's what it's going to take. >> the president also signed 23 executive actions, all meant to improve existing gun laws. one of them makes more data available for background checks. one offers security for schools that want them. it is important to note that with those executive actions, policy directives are not needed for congressional approval, as well. so this is coming directly from the white house, directly from president obama's chair. he's cracking down. he wants to reinstate a ban on assault-style weapons. ban high-capacity magazines, which a small majority of americans approve of and a large majority want to see stricter laws when it comes to background checks and getting authorized. >> it's going to be a tough sell, no doubt about it. >>> the president's n
about taking their findings as the new law of the land. that their findings about him were correct. he had to show he was serious about that, and if he did that, maybe they would lift the lifetime ban they had imposed upon him. the second thing he had to do was build public sympathy. try to remind people why they fell in love with lance armstrong in the first place. on the first front, failed miserably. he actually drew a line through the heart of the usada report. the heart of the report said that lance armstrong was actually a doping ringleader, that he wasn't just another cyclist who used peds, but that he organized his team to actually use dope. >> he wasn't accepting of that last night. >> no. he said absolutely not. and today they are not happy with that interview. on the second front about building public sympathy, i mean, my word, i felt like i was watching the titanic hit an iceberg. i felt like oprah kept trying to help him, like throwing him lifelines, like try to make yourself more sympathetic, please. all he could do is stare back with this reptilian look on his face and r
to our side saying, look, these guys are nuts, we've got to have sensible gun laws. and we do have to have sensible gun laws. let me tell you for every representative stockman, there's representative dent and fitzpatrick and gerlach who -- >> explain that because you know that suburban politics where you have republicans representing moderate political communities, and how will they react. >> not just philadelphia, but in st. louis, chicago, cleveland, and places like that, and those republicans are going to face a real tough decision. they stay with the nra and they endanger their re-election because in those districts, 70%, 80% of the people want these sensible measures. they want background checks for everyone, no exceptions. they want high capacity magazines banned. they want assault rifles banned. it's going to be a real test all over this country. >> michael steele is here. michael, you're a reasonable guy obviously. let's look at these numbers. "the washington post" numbers on gun show background checks, 88% support. this is a new "washington post" poll here. overwhelmingly
-round limit for magazines. and finally congress needs to help rather than hinder law enforcement as it does its job. we should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. and we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this. >> collin, what's your reading on what he did today? do enough? >> we finally have leadership from the white house. it's great to see a comprehensive approach to the gun violence. the vice president promised me personally we're going to get something done about this. it was a great day. >> when you hear it, what do you see that works? what do you see that will stop people who are mentally unstable or emotionally unstable or criminally intent from getting guns to use in these spray shootings is what we're really concerned with right now. >> that's the biggest way to impact that is at the point of sale and requiring a background check on all gun sales. they realize that background checks don't take guns from law-abiding people. they pass those every time. but those with a felony conviction or a diagn
, they would even say no to their own ideas. >> this law failed by seven votes. when seven republicans, who had co-sponsored the bill, had co-sponsored the idea suddenly walked away from their own proposal after i endorsed it. so they make a proposal, sign on to the bill. i say, great. good idea. i turned around, they're gone. what happened? >> this was a hallmark of president obama's first term. republicans were going to say no, no, no, no matter what he offered. even if what he offered was their own idea in the first place. that is how it went for months and then that is how it went for years. and now, what's new? he is not doing that anymore. >> i have put forward a very clear principle. i will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. we're not going to play the same game that we saw happen in 2011. so we're not going to do that. i will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. we're not going to do that again. as i said earlier this week, one thing i will not compromise over is whether or not congress should pay the tab for a bill they've already racked up. what i will not do is to have that neg
differently. the problem with the gun control debate from the perspective of folks who want gun control laws is they need to say, we don't want to target lawful gun owners. 47% of adults in this country say they have a gun in the home. you want to say, we want to separate out the people who are gun trafficking and doing other things that promote the climate of gun violence from that cause of lawful gun owners. i think the nra, they win by losing. the more you have a debate around these issues the more it seems we're going to get more gun laws, the nra builds intensity that way. >> erin, that's the mistake that i've been saying from day one. this should not be a gun control conversation. it should be a gun violence conversation. and if you are talking gun control, you're playing on the nra's field. if you say gun violence and you broaden it, that's a different debate. that's been the problem from day one. >> all right, thanks to all of you. you always want to have the home field advantage. if they have it, they have it. >>> doctors racing to save the vision of a man who was attacked with acid
control laws. the president says he knows he faces an uphill fight, trying to get congress to go along with an assault weapons ban. in the wake of the sandy hook elementary school massacre, mr. obama said he will consider using executive powers to bring about change. >> if there's a step we can take to save even one child from what happened in newtown, we should take that step. >> the president is reviewing proposals from vice president biden who was asked to head up a task force to stop gun violence. more details are expected later this week. >>> new york state is not waiting for federal action to crack down on guns. governor andrew cuomo and state lawmakers reached a deal on the country's first new gun control measure following the newtown shooting. the senate voted late last night and today the assembly is expected to approve some of the most restrictive gun laws in america, including tougher background checks and expanded assault weapons ban. >>> former president george h.w. bush wakes up at home today for the first time in almost two months. he was released from a hospital in hous
law enforcement authorities and the nation's news media have described. normally we wouldn't dignify these types of remarks by covering them but james tracy is a tenured professor at a public university. his comments have caused deep distress to the victims' families. we invited him to come on the program friday night. the declined. he gave us a statement, though, quote, i apologize for any additional anguish and grief my remarks, and how they have been taken out of context and misrepresented, may have caused the families that lost loved ones on december 14th. at the same time i believe what we can give them is a way to identify. after a report aired on friday professor tracey accused me on his blog of targeting him and his family. he posed it as a question in the headline of the "post" does anderson cooper want james tracy or his family members harmed? he includes a photo of me that looks like i'm in the middle of a rant. i'm not actually. that's a picture of me from an interview i did with comedian kathy griffin from her show. so it's not from this show. he says in his blog post be
